“For the next hour, we advise the whole country move to level Gortskehy”

As part of our Creative Schools initiative 3rd and 4th class were presented with the opportunity of creating a radio show. We worked very hard with Jojo Hynes, our creative associate and Claremorris Community Radio. We started by brainstorming ideas and began the creative process of putting radio pieces together. We learned how to make radio reports, how to present items for radio and how to structure an hour of radio. We covered everything from the news and weather to farming to the sports desk and everything else in between. We also included some seasonal pieces as it was being aired on Christmas Day 2020.

We would like to thank Jojo Hynes and Claremorris Community Radio for giving us the opportunity of a lifetime. We had great fun putting this together and we hope you enjoy ‘Gortskehy Radio’ as created by 3rd and 4th Class. We definitely have a few budding radio stars in our midst here in Gortskehy National School.

Gortskehy on Claremorris Community Radio 94.6 FM.

      Guitar in Gortskehy

      Posted by Ms. Thomas On March - 6 - 2020

      We had a great 4 weeks learning guitar with Jason Moyles recently.

      We started by learning how to tune our guitars using a tuner and our ear. We then learned 4 chords and have been practising a lot at home.

      This extra-curricular activity has complemented our work in the creative schools project where our overall theme is music and performance.

      Jason is a wonderfully talented musician and guitar player and it was a pleasure for the children to work with him. He has been very generous with his time and we are very thankful to him.
